A seriously good blended whisky - A mix of Madeira, Bourbon and Sherry barrels. Speyside, Highland, and a drop of Islay.
This fantastic limited release 10-year-old expression from Spencer Collings, an independent bottler founded by former Diageo executive, Mike Collings.
This blended malt Scotch has come from distilleries across Scotland - the sources are secret, but if whispers are true then this has some truly remarkable juice in it. All of these are ten years old or older and this limited edition has been bottled at cask strength 54.8%, and a real staff favourite here at DC.
What we know for sure is that there have been three different types of wood maturation involved:
- A Speyside single malt was matured in a first-fill Madeira Barrique (about 185 litres)
- A Northern Highland single malt was matured in a second-fill American oak ex-bourbon barrel (about 190 litres)
- Speyside and Islay single malt whiskies were matured in a refill Oloroso sherry butt (about 400 litres)
